Mh, I'll close the thread for now. No sense in rekindling false hope of an update with every post.

You've made one named that? Had no idea! Hope its ID has a mod-specific prefix, or there are going to be compatibility issues :)

since new ships are getting sprinkled into the game, can i make a suggestion? one of my favourite ship to play with is the sunder, the reason being that is a reasonably maneuverable ship but has a large weapon mount. i would very much like a similar ship, but with a large ballistic mount instead of a energy mount.

If the Cerberus is like a large Hound, I'm gonna be pretty happy. The bomber changes are great, too.

So Alex, will you stick to the plan that has the next release as the second part of the polish-update, or are you already working on new features?

Yes... I believe David shared a partial preview on his twitter but I'm definitely looking forward to seeing the complete ship.

Let's see, teasers:

You've seen the Hermes before. (Btw - one thing I forgot to mention, the Mercury-class and the Hermes-class have a total of 3 small weapon mounts each, which means the current shuttle - now the Mercury - got an extra one.)

The Cerberus - the name is a clue, though not necessarily how you might expect. Think association, not literal interpretation.

The Heron, as mentioned, there's a picture of it in-progress floating around on Twitter.

How's that? :)

Yeah, that sounds like it could be fun. Will keep it in mind!

Plan's the same. Yeah, the latest patch notes update is a bit on the small side given how long it's been since the previous one. I plead holidays and some other RL stuff getting in the way.


Bloody hell, SIX flight decks now?

Yeah - with the fast cruiser-sized carrier having 2 decks, a mere 3 for the Astral seemed underwhelming, given that it's also slow and expensive.

Mh...
Cerberus has three heads - A trimaran hull configuration?
He's a watchdog - A defensive oriented class?
The Cerberus organization build Mass Effect's Normandy SR2 - A ship that shares some similarities?

Hmmm, I figure the Hermes is the old mid-tech shuttle sprite that has been lying around. I always liked that one.

I wonder if the Cerberus is mastery, core or expansion epoch. Screenshotssssssssss!
